RENA Technologies GmbH has received a double-Digit million EUR order for wet processing equipment from Chinese customer LERRI Solar. LERRI Solar is a fully owned subsidiary of Xi’an LONGi Silicon Materials Corp., the world’s largest manufacturer of monocrystalline silicon wafers. RENA Technologies will deliver a large number of production tools for alkaline texturing and junction isolation for a production capacity of more than 2 GW of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, supporting the continued growth of LERRI Solar’s production capacity. RENA BatchTex texturing tools enable LERRI Solar to exploit the benefit of high throughput and IPA free alkaline texturing on a compact equipment footprint.
The patented InOxSide+® Inline systems combine junction isolation and rear side smoothing for high efficiency solar cells. “Our successful long-term business relationship and the outstanding characteristics of the RENA tools convinced us to place the order with RENA” said Jack Zou, General Manager at Xi’An Longi Silicon Materials Corp. “The project award is an important achievement, demonstrating again the leading market position of RENA Technologies new equipment generation for wet processes in solar cell manufacturing” states Dr. Tobias Luecke, CEO of RENA. “We are very proud that LERRI Solar again relies on the quality of our wet processing equipment in order to expand their strong position in the highly competitive market of solar cell manufacturers,” adds Dr. Daniel Rieser, Senior VP for Sales and Services.
